The poem tells the story of two trolls who spend a winter in a professor’s empty summer cottage, entranced by the wonders of its library. A celebration of imagination and life, this poem captures many of the themes that reappear again and again in Toikka’s work.

Like the poem, Toikka’s Cuconor is a beautiful work of fiction. It has a round white body, enlivened by flecks of gold, rose, green and blue. The metallic marks shimmer in the light, awakening a sense of wonder in all who lay their eyes upon it. Its small head is made of clear glass so as not to distract from the subtle beauty of its stunning body. With its inspiring story and lovely appearance, this is one bird that is easy to love.
